US folks interested in one of the more unique smartphones of 2015 will finally get a chance to put some money down in a couple of days.
While there are plenty of conversations to be had about the best Android phones — conversations that ususally start and end with the major brands out there today — the folks at Yota Devices delivered something truly unique this year with the YotaPhone 2. The dual screen device offered a fun twist on using your smartphone to do more, and in the process turned out to be one of the better experiences out there for users who prefer the Nexus way of doing things. The only things missing from the YotaPhone 2 experience during our review were proper US band support for 4G LTE and an update to the latest version of Android. A quick glance over at the YotaPhone website this morning gives us a peek and when we can expect both.

The smartphone space is an increasingly populated – read, crowded – place to be. And it's getting more so as manufacturers such as Huawei start to pump out more, and better, phones, and push to expand its availability into more western markets. The past year was a pretty good one for Huawei with some excellent devices launched, and more sure to be on the way.
As new phones come and go, though, it's tough to keep up with things. So we're breaking it down into a continuously updated list to highlight the best devices that Huawei has to offer. These are the one's we'll be writing about and they'll also be the ones you'll likely want to consider.

Before there were smartphones, back when we were all on flip phones and bricks, phones really only did two things: they made calls and they sent text messages.
Nowadays, our phones do a heck of a lot more, but we still consider messaging one of the most important functions of our phones. After all, these are communication devices. And unlike the flip phone days where you were stuck with the messaging app that came with your phone, today you have a plethora of choices for how you send your emoji and hilarious pics across town and around the world. Most phones even ship with two text messaging options out of the box. With all the choices in messaging, we wonder what app our faithful readers are using.
